Today is National Wear Red Day which is a day to remind women to take action against heart disease! I, for one, have been  eating healthier and have been more physically active ever since my mom got diagnosed with Heart disease several years back. For 5 years it was not only a physically challenging time for my mom, but also an emotional one for my whole family. During that time our family moved back  & forth from Korea in search of the doctor that could successfully operate on my mom. After 2 unsuccessful heart surgeries we were getting quite discouraged, but we kept pushing to find the right doctor and it was after her third surgery she was completely healed! Mama lim is now super healthy & happy!

Let’s all take this day to raise awareness of heart disease and pay tribute to all of the women in our lives and all over the world that have been affected by this disease.

Help us spread the word of the Heart Truth!

This story was so touching it made got me close to tearing up. I had no idea your mom went through such an ordeal. I am glad she came through fighting. I know how its like to have a close relative go through surgery and to be in anticipation of what is going on so I feel you on that. Well take care and give all our well wishes to your mom.

Aww! It’s good to hear she did it! And you like your mom! On the very first photo, I was like; “did Chriselle ever imagine how she’d look like when she grow up? Because she doesn’t have to!” :)

So true. We need to remember to take care of ourselves mentally (less stress) and physically. This year I am aiming to do something physically active everyday.

Wauw! She is a strong woman. This inspires everyone that everything is possible and never to give up on nothing! Even though someone or something takes you down. Keep your head up high and never give up!
